"Is it GOOD to PAY CHILDREN for doing HOUSEHOLD CHORES?"
May 25, 2019 12:19am CST
When I was a young kid, my biological parents never give us money for doing household chores. For them, it is a way for their children to be responsible and independent. I personally think that it is a good way to discipline children. Nowadays, the children do household chores and the parents pay them. I am not sure if you are in favor of this. It seems that children will not do house tasks without any money to receive from their parents. "What is your call with this concern?" "Is it a good way for parents to do this?"

Yes, it is important to teach kids that their chores are just part of living as a family. On the other hand it is also good for kids to have money of their own to learn how to manage money. Both chores and allowance can be important parts of teaching our kids.
The only thing that I can remember is my parents gave us money and saved it to a piggy bank. In fact, we do save it to have something we wanted like having novel books, toys and the like. But it is not for the household chores matter.
@Shavkat I didn't have a piggy bank, but I had a box in my room when I kept small amount of the money that I received from my parents. One day my brother took one of the bills from the box. He was too young tp understand what money was. He just thought that the bill had a pretty picture
@Porcospino Actually, I used the word piggy bank. Locally, we use a 'bamboo bank.' It is quite not that fancy but it is better than having the piggy bank. One of the reasons, it is difficult to get the coins from this. Image Credit: salecrazythings.files.wordpress.com

At home the kids of my niece never received a pay when do some tasks at home. The tasks they do at home are for the kids training. Children should be taught the value of money.Paying them is a bad example of corruption.
